Subject Re: Getting DBI working during the server life cycle
Date Sun, 24 Jan 2010 06:34:30 GMT
I wasn't sure how to do the path mentioned in the link so I just manually edited the Apache::DBI
file and added the eval around the line requesting Apache2::RequestRec and it seems to work
Thanks for the heads up.  All of the literature I have mentions Apache::DBI for use with mod_perl.
I did look at DBI::Class as the Apache::DBI author mentioned, but I would rather use Apache::DBI
and do the class structure myself.

Seems like an easy enough thing to patch into Apache::DBI to avoid these head aches, wonder
why the author isn't?

Thanks again,
Boysenberry Payne
